We are so happy that we chose the Garryvoe Hotel for our recent wedding reception. When we first started looking for a reception venue, we thought it would be a difficult choice, particularly as we live abroad, but it turned out to be an easy decision once we visited the Garryvoe Hotel. We got a sense from them straight away that our wedding would be in safe hands and that everything would run smoothly despite us organizing things from afar, which is exactly what happened. Andrzej, Liz, Laura and Ben were fantastic to deal with and made the whole process so easy for us.
Everything about the Garryvoe was brilliant. The food was fantastic and they have a broad menu and are happy to accommodate other dietary needs, which was important to us as we had a few vegetarians, coeliacs and diabetics among our guests. The interior of the hotel was recently renovated so the decor is stunning, and the location is as picturesque as they come. Some of our guests travelled from abroad and they were very impressed with the hotel. The best thing about the Garryvoe, however, was the staff who were all so friendly, helpful and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble for them and many of our guests mentioned the friendliness of the staff afterwards.
I'm sure there were one or two hiccups on the day but, if there were, we were never aware of them and were able to just focus on enjoying ourselves and spending time with family and friends. We have so many happy memories from the Garryvoe Hotel and really could not say a bad word about the place. Before the wedding, we thought it would be a great venue but it completely exceeded our expectations. We loved every minute of our time there and can't wait to go back for a visit!
